    The bit at the beginning about the idea that the Michael Jackson song literally includes lyrics saying that he forgot the lyrics reminds me that there is actually an Ella Fitzgerald song called “How High The Moon” where the chorus just straight up says “How high the moon, is the name of this song … though the words may be wrong, we’re singing it, because you ask for it!”

    I strongly need to agree regarding “this is your song”. Elton John decides to be a man selling potions in a traveling show (not really romantic and kinda creepy). He also forgets the eye color of his lover, which is pretty craptastic.
